Remember me?

Sorry for the lack of posting! I had the stomach flu last week which kept me down for a couple of days. Thank god for Phenergan & Imodium or I don't think I would have made it! I had a check up last Friday and everything is still going great. So great that the doctor doesn't want to see me for 3 more weeks! My next appointment is May 14th, I'll be 34 weeks 3 days!! I have been busy trying to get the apartment cleaned (and stay cleaned). I have also been working on cleaning Ethan's room. C just needs to put away a few things and get rid of some big boxes! I still need to pick out the fabric for Ethan's bedding & curtains so MIL can make it (soon hopefully!). We are keeping the decorating to a minimum, especially since we can't paint. I did find a wall decal with his name that I LOVE and will be ordering soon. I am so excited to get everything together!!

I am looking forward to May 7th because we are going to Tacoma for the Nickelback concert!! Ethan is going to be rocking out in my belly :) Then the next weekend is my baby shower in C's hometown which is 4 hours away!! We are driving there and back the same day because I have to work on Sundays and can't get it off. That is going to be one LONG day and I am not looking forward to sitting in the car, but I am looking forward to seeing family and getting things for Ethan! After that we only have about 5 weeks left to get everything else finished! I can't believe how close we are getting to having this little boy and I cannot wait!!!!

I'll leave you with a belly pic that I took yesterday.

Super long post with a few pics!

We made a couple big purchases recently that I am so excited about! Last week we were looking online at glider's and found the one we wanted on sale! It was $40 off, score! We also got free shipping which saved another $48 dollars! It is the Storkcraft Tuscany Glider in Espresso with beige-ish colored cushions. We ordered it from and they were awesome! We ordered it last Friday, it shipped Monday, and arrived to our doorstep on Wednesday! Talk about super-fast! Here is a picture of it set up in our living room for now (we are still working on cleaning out the nursery). The picture doesn't do it justice because it was taken with my cell phone.

The other thing we have been waiting for is the car seat & stroller. C's parents are buying that for us, and for some reason we just hadn't gotten it yet. Well I happened to look online a couple nights ago to see if it was still available and it was SOLD OUT! WHAT!?! We searched long and hard and this is the ONE that C & I both agreed on. I looked online, and it was sold out everywhere! I started freaking out a little bit, but C said just call Babies R Us when you wake up in the morning (it was about 10pm at this point.) The closest store is 1 1/2 hours away, but it's worth it if they have what we want! But, of course they didn't. So I called the next closest store which is TWO hours away. After being on hold for 10 minutes she told me they had ONE in stock. ONE! It was a miracle considering it wasn't something they even carried in their store! So I drove about 4 1/2 hours yesterday in the lovely Seattle/Bellevue traffic to get the travel system we wanted!! It was so worth it too! It is gorgeous in person, and we LOVE IT even more than we did before! We decided on the Baby Trend Flex-Lock travel system in Mojito. This picture does not do the colors justice! It is the prettiest green/brown combo I have seen. The underside of the canopies on both the car seat and stroller have a geometric pattern. It is TOO CUTE!!
So of course we had to practice with our baby duck! I had to show C how to put him in their properly lol. Again, the picture quality is bad with the cell phone and the sun was shining very bright!
It is so crazy to see this in our house now! Only 9 1/2 weeks left until Ethan is due, and we CANNOT WAIT!

Today we started cleaning out the nursery & our bedroom, finally getting rid of clothes/belongings we have held onto for far too long. Our apartment is a mess right now, but we will get there! Tomorrow I am going to finish cleaning both rooms out so that C can put the crib together!!! I'll post pictures of that once it is all together.

30 weeks!!

I cannot believe we have made it 30 weeks!! Only 10 weeks left to go!? For some reason, I never thought I would make it to this point, and now I can't believe we will have a little baby here before we know it! Ethan, we love you so much already! Your daddy and I can't wait to see you, hold you, kiss you, and just be your parents!!

How far along? 30 weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain/loss:
+9 pounds, but really I am at the exact weight I was when I got pregnant thanks to the sickness and losing weight in the beginning!

Maternity clothes?
Sleep: I have maybe 1-2 good nights of sleep a week. i only get up 2-3 times to pee, but I am getting more uncomfortable. Oh, and we have horrible loud neighbors below us! Thankfully they are moving out at the end of the month!!

Best moment this week:
We got our glider/rocker today! Patiently waiting for hubby to get home and put it together! I am also pretty sure that Ethan flipped the other night! I am feeling him move much lower, and I don't feel his back curled up in my ribs anymore! I hope he did!

he has his times where he moves like crazy, otherwise he likes to sleep! I get worried every now and then that he isn't moving as much, but then he reminds me that he is there:)

Food cravings:
I like food. ALL FOOD!
BOY!!! **Ethan Dale**

Labor Signs:

Belly Button in or out?

always there, long before I got pregnant

What I am looking forward to:
getting his nursery put together!

30 weeks!!!!

Crazy dreams

Everything I have read up to this point has touched on how your dreams can change & become more vivid during pregnancy. I had a couple of dreams about having a baby boy in the beginning, but otherwise nothing. That all changed in the last week or so. I am having dreams every night, VIVID dreams about this baby either dying or trying to come early! What the heck? I woke up covered in sweat the other morning & scared to death that something was the matter. Then Ethan started his dance party, and I felt much better. I know it's normal to have these dreams, but they feel so real. For all of you momma's out there, did you have these kind of vivid dreams too?
